Surgeons in the Czech Republic have developed a new cosmetic surgery procedure, which uses the patient's own tissue to create fuller lips.
The procedure, developed at Europa International, involves taking a small amount of tissue from the patient's buttocks and inserting it into the lips, thereby enhancing the look and feel of the person's lips.
And, unlike other forms of lip enhancement, the procedure provides a permanent solution for the problem of thin lips.
"One of the increasingly popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the UK is lip enhancement which, like most procedures, is influenced by celebrities that appear to have the perfect bodies and features," said Libby Babbage, director of Europa International.
"With the likes of Angelina Jolie, who has amazing full lips and is considered one of the world's most beautiful women, people considering cosmetic surgery look at the possibility of improving every aspect of their body and face," she explained.
Ms Babbage warned that there have been recent examples of collagen lip enhancements providing less-than-desirable results, while others produce only temporary improvements.
"However, we are delighted to announce that we are now able to offer this unique and everlasting procedure," she added.
